LMB Candidate Interview Guide

The purpose of the LMB Candidate Interview is twofold. First, we want to select the best possible candidate for the class from the candidate pool at hand and secondly to present Leadership Manhattan Beach in the best possible light.

We will usually have more candidates than space available and some candidates who are more than qualified will not be selected and feelings could be hurt. Our intention is to conduct all LMB business in the fairest and most transparent way possible.  To ensure that there is never a question of favoritism and that all parties feel the process was fair, interview panels of no less than three (3) Alumni should be convened to conduct the interviews with each interview lasting twenty (20) minutes. When possible, if you have student interviews scheduled, try to have a teen on the panel.

Interviews can be conducted any day of the week, but typically are held on two consecutive Saturdays. Most people work and will not be able to make a weekday interview. The interviews should be scheduled beginning at 9:00AM with interviews lasting 20 minutes with a 30-minute lunch break for the Recruiting Director.

We have used SignUpGenius in the past to schedule both the Candidate interviews as well as the Interviewer time slots.

To ensure that we are not asking too much of those volunteering to do interviews it is highly recommended that two (2) separate interview panels be convened using the following schedule: Panel #1 – 9:00am-1:00pm, Panel #2 – 1:30pm-5:00pm.

 Creating a professional environment and setting the tone of the interview is very important. Personalized placeholders should be created for each interviewer displaying the LMB logo and the interviewer’s full name. (Templates have been provided in the digital file).

Each interviewer should have their own Notebook containing the following:

  • Notebook – White 1” Binder with Inside Pockets
  • Complete Candidate Interview Schedule of the Days Interviews
  • All Candidate Applications in the Order to be interviewed (SignUpGenius)
  • Candidate Rating Sheet for Each Candidate
  • LMB Interview Questions for Each Candidate
  • Copy of Class Schedule

Signage confirming the Candidate Interviews and candidate instructions is in the digital file and should be printed and posted conspicuously at the interview location.

Guide For Interviewers

 It is a good policy to have those sitting on each panel arrive fifteen (15) minutes prior to the first interview of that session. This will be the first time for many of them and they may not be sure of what is expected of them or areas they need to pay close attention to during the interviews.

The Recruiting Director may want to do the preamble to each interview although it is a very long day and he/she may want to let others take the lead as well.

Mandatory Discussion Points

To be certain that each Candidate can fulfill LMB’s requirements to be in the class there are a few housekeeping items that must be discussed/answered at the beginning of each interview.

Give the Candidate a copy of the Class Schedule. It should be explained to each Candidate that although we would like them to have a perfect attendance record, we understand the “life happens” and because of that, we will allow up to two (2) absences. Beyond that, it is up to the class Facilitator whether the Candidate can graduate with the class.

We also explain to them that we have two (2) mandatory Retreats (say the dates) that they must attend. If they know that they cannot attend both Retreats, thank them for their time and application and suggest they reapply when they can attend the Retreats. The same holds true if when they look at the Class Schedule they see dates that they know they will miss and they total more than the two (2) absences allowed.

We also point out the date for the Summer Social and although it is not mandatory to attend, we explain that it is the first time they will get to meet the Board of Directors, Alumni and their Class Facilitator. We let them know it is a fun event and we strongly recommend they attend.

It is your job as the Recruiting Director and as the Interview Panel to explain the LMB Program to the Candidates and to answer any questions they may have. It is through this interaction that you will perform the most important of tasks, determining who should be in the class. Not everyone should be in LMB.  During the interview look for the signs that will make someone either an amazing addition to the class or the person who may be the “disrupter”.

Class dynamics are a balancing act at best and you may end up having no control. I had a Facilitator ask me to do one thing and that was “do not recruit a crazy class”. Pay attention to the questions you are asked and the responses given to your questions. If you see a red flag, discuss it with the other panel members before the next interview while it is still fresh in your mind. In the end, you are responsible for the class you recruit.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact your predecessor, Board President or the Class Facilitator.

Finally, at the end of the interview let the Candidate know that you will be emailing determination letters by (select timing that fits) and a reminder about attending the Summer Social.

Remember, it’s a learning experience and have fun with it.

LMB CLASS PROJECT FUNDRAISING AND SPONSORSHIP GUIDE

Introduction

This document provides top-level guidance and recommendations to help the Class fundraise and manage their finances. Please feel free to contact the Sponsorship Director or the Treasurer for additional guidance or specific details. Contact information for both is provided below.

Budget and Financial Planning

The baseline budget for a Class Project cannot exceed $7,500. However, the overall Class Project plan can include optional tasks that may be exercised if the Class fundraising efforts provide sufficient funds. The LMB Treasurer will need to approve the budget and fundraising methods prior to the commencement of the project. Details of various aspects of fundraising are outlined in the next several paragraphs. When developing your plan, remember that the Class Project is primarily about the leadership process and not the product. Excessive fundraising is neither required nor encouraged.

Fundraising Options and Guidelines

Monetary Sponsorships

A monetary donation made by a company or a private individual must be made to “Leadership Manhattan Beach” with a notation in the memo section of the check “for allocation to the Class project”. All checks and cash donations should be sent immediately to the LMB Treasurer. Checks should be mailed to the LMB PO Box 3046, Manhattan Beach, California, 90266.

LMB is a non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. Our Tax ID number (95-4525658) should be included on your acknowledgment of the contribution. Financial questions and tax exemption issues should be directed to the Treasurer.

The current LMB Sponsorship Levels may be found on our website at http://www.leadershipmb.org/sponsors.html. Class Sponsorship Levels may differ from these, if advantageous.

Some sponsors may prefer to offer support through in-kind donations. The Class will have to determine if these in-kind sponsors receive the same benefits as cash donation sponsors.

Events

Past events have included cocktail parties at private residences or local restaurants. Usually, a ticket purchase is required for entrance to the event. Past ticket prices have ranged from $25-$40 and often include hors-d'oeuvres and wine. The LMB Facilitator must approve any fundraising event “concept.”

Auction/Raffle

Although a lot of work, a silent and/or live auction and/or raffle at an event can be a fun and effective approach to fundraising. Generally, local merchants, individuals, or class members donate auction items. Please be considerate of approaching current LMB sponsors for further donations as discussed below under Sponsorship Coordination with LMB. 

Electronic Fundraising

The Class will use the LMB PayPal account for all electronic fundraising efforts. The Class is permitted to use the LMB Square account for all credit card swipes at Auctions/Raffle events. The LMB Eventbrite account is to be used to sell tickets to events that the Class wishes to sell tickets to. No new accounts for receiving funds electronically should be created by the Class.

Sponsor Recognition

Sponsors of the Class Project should receive appropriate recognition for their donations. Class fundraising efforts should make it clear to potential sponsors that the fundraising is for the Leadership Manhattan Beach “Class of [insert graduation year]” project.

Sponsorship Coordination with LMB

It is very important to maintain close coordination between the Class fundraising and LMB sponsorship activities to avoid parallel solicitation of existing or new sponsors. Such parallel solicitations reflect poorly on the Class and LMB, further, in the past they have resulted in both groups being unsuccessful.

Existing LMB Sponsors

Current LMB Sponsors should not be solicited under any circumstances. A list of LMB sponsors can be found on the Sponsors page of our website (http://www.leadershipmb.org/sponsors.html). Click on “Additional Sponsors” at the bottom of the first Sponsor page to view the second page of sponsors.

Duplicate New Sponsors

The Sponsorship Director’s team regularly approaches new individuals and organizations with sponsorship requests, creating another opportunity for duplicate solicitation. LMB will generally defer to the Class in this case because a Class sponsor becomes an excellent LMB sponsor candidate the following year. Again, the key to avoiding duplication lies in the regular sharing of candidate new sponsors between the Class and LMB. An email when either list changes would help keep the two groups coordinated.

Project Finances

Financial questions and tax exemption issues should be directed to the LMB Treasurer. All receipts and requests for payment should also go to the LMB Treasurer on a regular and timely basis.

Fundraising

The Class will maintain a list of funds collected by source, donor and amount. This list should include contact information for all donors. The template for the fundraising will be provided by the LMB Treasurer for the Class Treasure to maintain. This template will be updated and provided to the LMB Treasurer on a weekly basis until all fundraising is complete.

Expenses

The Class will create a budget to complete the baseline project. Phases to expand the project can be added over above the baseline project should the Class have excess funds over and above the baseline. The LMB Treasurer will provide the Class with the budget template that is required to be maintained for the project. The budget will be sent to the LMB Treasurer on a weekly basis until the project is complete. The Class is responsible for covering the up-front costs of any fundraising effort. LMB makes an up-front loan of $500, which may be used for any project related costs. Any request for reimbursement must be accompanied by an invoice marked as paid or official receipt. PLEASE KEEP ALL RECEIPTS, as expenses cannot be reimbursed without proof of payment. All Class Project expenses must be paid prior to graduation.

Excess Funds

The Class shall determine the scope of their project and make a good faith effort to not fundraise beyond the anticipated cost of the project. If at graduation any funds remain, they will revert to the LMB General Fund.

LMB Board of Directors Contact Information

Contact information for the current Board of Directors, including the Sponsorship Director and the Treasurer, may be found on the LMB website at this location LeadershipMB.org/Board of Directors/. Alternatively, go to http://leadershipmb.org, click on "About Us", then click on here under Board of Directors. The Sponsorship Director and Treasurer’s emails are Sponsorship@LeadershipMB.org and Treasurer@LeadershipMB.org.

Historical Perspective Class Project Fundraising Policy/Guidelines:          

The project target is set at $7,500 because it limits the size and complexity of the project to what is manageable in the short time frame. A project that is too big makes it too stressful and makes what is a good learning experience into something that is too much hard work.

The $500 the Board gives is a token support to get them going.  We think this is still a realistic amount.

The Facilitator’s major goals and role as it relates to the project are as follows:

  • To encourage the class to select a project that allows them a chance to learn how to work together as a team and also provides something to the City.
  • To ensure they are finished by graduation.
  • To ensure they do not overextend themselves and create a financial liability for the Board or Program.
  • To ensure there is no liability risk exposure to LMB.
  • To make sure they don't damage the reputation of Leadership within the Community.
  • To provide them with the team support they need to effectively work well together.
  • To connect them with people they need to be successful.
  • To share past lessons learned and information from past classes.
  • To stay out of their way unless their intervention is needed.

LMB - CLASS WEB USE POLICY

LMB Classes will use the existing LMB website (www.LeadershipMB.org) for publicity or fundraising purposes. This is because we want to have one web identity for LMB, not multiple identities for different classes or events. The class project manager or other designees should work with LMB's Technology Director to create a page or pages on the LMB site to promote their project or event.

LMB Classes have access to and should use LMB's existing web applications. For example, LMB uses MailChimp for email marketing to alumni and the Class may use this if they wish. LMB has vendor contracts that should be used to ensure consistency and control costs. Before creating email blasts, online registration processes, online surveys, or other web-based activities class designees should consult with LMB's Technology Director.

Classes may create Private Facebook Groups or online project management sites (e.g., Basecamp, Smartsheets, etc.) or online-shared documents (e.g., Google docs) to help them manage their project. These sites shall have an internal, class-focused audience rather than a public audience.

The class shall appoint a Class Technology Director who will facilitate communication between the class and the LMB Board on these policy issues as well as help class members make the best use of technology in completing their class project.

Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Technology Director.

LMB CLASS PROJECT MARKETING GUIDE

OVERVIEW

The purpose of the Marketing position is to create and maintain a publicity campaign that encompasses both marketing and public relations techniques to promote the LMB program, achievements, and successes within the South Bay community.  This is done through a variety of methods, including fliers, newspaper advertisements, press releases, and so forth.

It will be up to your class to determine which methods of marketing you will employ to advertise and promote your class project.  Below is a relatively comprehensive list of methods and resources available to you, but feel free to be creative and come up with your own ideas.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that, while any marketing you release does focus on your class project, it ultimately comes from the LMB program and reflects upon our entire organization, not just your class. For this reason, it is important that the class marketing team maintain close communications with the Marketing Director on the Board (Marketing@LeadershpMB.org). Specifically, a meeting with the two to review and discuss the class marketing plans and materials shall occur prior to any public release.

GUIDELINES

The LMB board considers "strengthening the LMB brand" one of our primary goals. Essential to accomplishing this goal is the creation of a strong and recognizable LMB image used in all marketing material. The class can help achieve this goal by following the guidelines listed below.

  1. The class will likely create their own logo for the project for use in their marketing materials. However, the LMB logo should also be prominently displayed on all marketing material and any signage or other material viewed by the public. Whenever possible, a link to the LMB website (www.leadershipmb.org) should be provided.
  2. Keep in mind that, while LMB organizes and offers the class, LMB and the LMB Class Project are separate and distinct from a sponsorship standpoint. The two entities maintain separate sponsor lists and sponsoring the Class Project does not also result in the donor being a LMB Sponsor. Similarly, an LMB Sponsor is not automatically a Class Project Sponsor. Marketing materials need to reflect these differences to avoid donor confusion and possible disappointment.
  3. If soliciting donations, work with the LMB Treasurer (Treasurer@LeadershipMB.org), to determine the best way of collecting payment. Do not use a PayPal account that belongs to an individual class member. Payments must go directly to the LMB account.

MARKETING METHODS and RESOURCES

Leadership Manhattan Beach

  1. Class Project Page on the LMB Website. Both news articles and advertisements can be posted to help promote your class project. Work with the LMB Technology Director (webmaster@leadershipmb.org) to get things posted.
  2. Mass emails publicizing your project can be sent to all LMB members/alumni through the LMB website (See CLASS WEB USE POLICY in this document.).
  3. Community Events. We have an official LMB Canopy with the LMB logo that the class may use.
  4. LMB maintains a public Facebook page and the class may establish their own Facebook page.

Other

Local Media (Beach Reporter, Easy Reader, etc.).

History

The Leadership Manhattan Beach (LMB) Program began in 1991 and graduated the first class in 1992. Organization, fundraising, program structure, and recruitment of the first class participants occurred in 1990.

  1. LMB will provide complementary class tuition for one MBCC member each year and MBCC will continue to be listed as a founding sponsor of LMB.

Additionally, the chamber will allow Leadership to use their physical address to receive items.

The 20 Board identified individuals shall be chosen by majority vote of the Board of Directors.
